> So what are the alternatives for people who want to find contracting work without networking?

Not having your own network opens you up to exploitation and poor treatment, because you need the network owner more than she needs you.

So, if you want that, you're left looking for an usually ethical company, which will be hard with a high chance of failure.

I think people need to be founding more online cooperatives and mutuals.
